"The Southern Automotive Conference (SAC) hosts top level content and discussion, introducing and exploring the latest innovations and issues related to automotive manufacturing. It brings together key industries including manufacturing, safety, logistics, government, and energy as they relate to automotive manufacturing.
SAC is in its 14th year of gathering together automotive manufacturers, suppliers, and service providers from all over the world, with a special focus on those based in Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas. The conference has grown over the years to become the largest event of its kind in the South, attracting global participants.
SAC is expected to attract 1,200 attendees and feature 200+ exhibitors. This international event is the go-to place to get inspired by the industry’s best and brightest, gain valuable resources to amp up your game, and—of course—have fun!"
Celebrate with us as we reflect on our society's year and look forward to growth in the years to come.

postponed to February 17, 2022
NOTE: The JASA Annual Dinner has been postponed until February 17, 2022. JASA was eager to hold its annual dinner in-person this year; however, the on-going surge of covid and the resulting strain on our healthcare systems led to a reassessment of our plans. We have postponed the Annual Dinner to prioritize the health and safety of our members, guests, their families, and our communities.
We look forward to seeing you at Toyota Field in Madison next year to celebrate Alabama’s Japanese companies, Japanese culture, and Alabama’s many important connections to Japan!
Each year, the Japan-America Society of Alabama hosts a special reception and fundraiser to allow our members and guests from all over Alabama to gather, network, and dine with a special program to celebrate the JASA community.
Our Annual Dinner Celebration will be held in Madison, AL on Thursday, February 17, 2022 at 5:30pm. Join us as we celebrate the relationship between Japan and Alabama at Toyota Field's SportsMed Stadium Club. We will award New and Expanding Japanese Companies across the state, hear from JASA leadership about our community's mission and goals, and honor the recipient of the 2021 Samuel Ullman Award.
